the bombings. president obama marked the moment of silence from the white house. the u.s. senate held a similar tribute on capitol hill. it is still unclear what impact the boston bombings will have on the immigration debate in congress. but the topic of national security is clearly playing a more prominent role in the discussion. things got tense on capitol hill yesterday when senator chuck schumer sparred republican senator chuck grassley about the future of the legislation. take a look. >> a few ways to improve the bill all for an amendment when we start mark-up in may and let's vote on it. i say that particularly those who were pointing to what happened. the terrible tragedy in boston as a -- i would say an excuse for not doing a bill or delaying it many months oer years. >> i never said that. >> i didn't say you did, sir. >> i didn't say -- >> i didn't say you did. i don't mean you, mr. grassley. >> mr. chairman, i don't appreciate the senator demeaning the witnesses that have come here. >> earlier, senator patrick leahy who chairs the judiciary committee opened the hearing with some tough

obama could have avoided this. here comes liz and charles. they're fired up about this and they're frequent flyers coming up. ♪ we went out and asked people a simple question: how old is the oldest person you've known? we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years. ♪ >> we are seeing real pain on the ground in the form of airport delays. maximum, deliberate pain because of those sequester cuts. here is what senator harry reid had to say about it. >> the airports across the country, millions of americans who fly will get their first taste of pain of sequestration. many americans have been feeling that pain for weeks. stuart: let's bring in liz macdonald on this one because the president specifically rejected a measure which would have given him the flexibility to say cut here, not the
in washington, d.c. as president obama said it is a pretty shameful day around here. nothing to be proud of. we'll tell you all about it and take your calls at 1-866-55-pre. we'll look forward to hearing from you on twitter at bpshow and come on, come on! be our friend on facebook at facebook.com/billpressshow. what a shameful day, the most shameful day we can remember, i can ever remember out of washington. when 46 senators decided that they would rather stand with the gun manufacturers and rather stand with the gun lobby and nra than 20 little angels gunned down at sandy look elementary school or their grieving parents who came down here and begged the senators to take action. they don't give a damn about the american people. don't give a damn about those beautiful little babies or their families or their brave teachers who stood by them. no doubt who's responsible. 90% of democrats voted yes. 90 pest of republicans voted no. meanwhile up in boston, thanks to video from lord & taylor police have hot leads in that investigation. but don't believe what you hear on cnn. no arrest has been made i
, there is no limitation. president obama says this. some members of my party say the battle has no geographic limitations, and the laws of war apply. it's important to know that the law of war that they're talking about means no due process. boyleston street sure looked -- "i quote from the" wall street journal "editorial." boyleston street sure looked like a battlefield on monday and so did watertown on thursday night. the artificial distinction arises from undue focus on geography. the vital distinction for public safety is between common criminals who deserve due process protections and enemy combatants at war with the united states wherever they are. as for due process, the greatest danger to liberty would be to allow more such attacks that would inspire an even greater public backlash against muslims or free speech or worse. the antiterror types on the left and g.o.p. senators who agree that the u.s. isn't part of the battlefield are making the united states more vulnerable. americans erupted in understandable relief and gratitude on friday with the rapid capture of the terrorist brothers, but we sh
to president obama and senator roger wicker has been released from custody on bond. the developments came hours after officials canceled a detention and preliminary hearing for paul kevin curtis. you might recall he was arrested wednesday. he claimed his innocence. an fbi agent said authorities did not find ricin at his home or vehicle. a news conference is scheduled for later this afternoon. right now, the man charged with sending those ricin letters to president obama and senator wicker released on bond. according to the latest information. and we're also following developing news out of philadelphia. the abortion doctor charged with killing newborns that were born alive. a judge has now dropped some of the charges against him. we'll have the very latest on that breaking news story. plus -- >> we have a broken immigration system. if anything, what we see in boston is that we have to fix and modernize our system for lots of reasons. >> congressman paul ryan defending the need for immigration reform in wake of the boston bombings. but another influential republican and perhaps a future presiden

that kind of situation? >> we have a commitment to president obama that those individuals will be detained. what i have said to the chairman and the chain of command is that were afghanistan not to meet their commitment we would have a real operational policy issues to address at that particular time. i think we changed fundamentally the nature of our operations and certainly change the support we might provide to afghanistan in the future. we have an agreement with afghanistan to keep those people detained. were they to violate that commitment i am satisfied that would be a significant change in our relationship and the nature of our operations. >> thank you, general. i want the follow-up on the questions that senator iumenthal ask you about -- appreciated your testimony. sponsor of the contractor enemy permission. as a result of that we have introduced legislation called"never contractinfg with the enemy." made significant progress. to fill in some of the gaps, including dropping the contract level from 100,000 to 20,000, as you had mentioned earlier, it is not just the dot that is contr
court and the statement taken from him cannot be used against him in that trial. >> while the obama administration has agreed to delay a reading of his miranda rights under a public safety exemption, secretary of defense chuck hagel has not seen evidence to link the bombings to terror groups. scrutiny turns to the fbi who reportedly questioned the older brother tamerlan in 2011 at the request of a foreign government. this is so interesting. of russia. the fbi told the a.p. despite interviewing him and relatives they did not find any activity. the agency dropped the ball. richard, i wonder if there is going to be a lot of questions and maybe even hearings out of this or what comes to mind just knowing those basic facts? >> there probably will be hearings of the fbi whether it learned more or could have done more. critics say that is monday morning quarterbacking. it ought to be about what we were talking about, what can we do to prevent or identify young people who are radicalized and how did we respond and how what did we learn about lockdowns. as the military would say it ought not
during your open periods. >> the obama administration has chosen to survive the suspect in the boston marathons in a civil trial. did they do the right thing? 90 seconds, sir. >> i believe that president obama and his justice department are completely committed to ensuring that justice is done in this case. all voted president obama last week. he said that justice would be done in this case. if in the opinion of president obama and his justice department, the proper place for prosecution is here in the federal district court system of the state of massachusetts, i believe that the court system here in massachusetts can provide that kind of a venue in order to hear this case. i defer to president obama. i defer to his justice department. if in their judgment, this is the proper place in order to conduct that trial. >> thank you, sir. mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> i think we have sufficient laws in our criminal system to prosecutor terror its, number two if you will. i think the effort to classify baptsant. nemy com i've been to gitmo and i've been involved in the process of trying to find
points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
obama and adding to the song "yes, we can: voices of a grassroots movement," she has well sung the national anthem at the national championship football game and as well she has given a lot of contributions to american music. she is a supporter of music education for our children, the mother of a daughter and, yes, a prominent american. but i think if we could say the most about yolanda adams is that she never stops evangelizing and seeking to help those who are hopeless and in despair. she brings joy to those who seek it and believes that everyone is a child of god. i'm grateful to know yolanda adams and to claim her as a constituent of the great city of houston and the great state of texas. but most of all, she's an american who is a believer and understands the value of america's freedom to be able to worship. she continues to soldier on to save souls and we're delighted to have been able to have her bless us this morning. mr. speaker, i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair will entertain five further requests for one-minute speeches on each side of the aisle. the
by the crisis, they went to the home of ed demarco calling for his dismissal from president obama. joining us now is eric bolling, the co-host of the successful "the five", it is ultra successful you're killing them. well done. i call it political thuggery, it reminds me of people going to banker's homes and terrorizing them. i think it's out of bounds. >> i agree with you 100%. remember, there was a bus load of people that drove up to connecticut and stopped and protested in front of people's home with the big banks were getting bailed out and look what they're doing now. they were mad at the banks for getting bailed out, remember that? they're doing the exact opposite now. they're saying we need a bailout. we want mortgage mitigation, we want more money. which way do you want it. protest bailouts or protest that you're not getting bailed out? make up your mind. they just-- look, they're just putting a big smoke screen up. they want more stuff. stuart: i think it's the return of acorn, precisely the same tax particulars and out of bounds. i want to bring up a dispute. >> go right ahead. stua
shouldn't have to pay for president obama's campaign promise to harry reid, certainly not $39.6 worth. mr. speaker, d.o.e.'s proposal is a boon doingle at a time when our citizens -- boondoggle at a time when our citizens can least afford it. i am not laughing. as we learn of the tragic events of yesterday, we are reminded there is evil in the world, we pray for boston, our country, and the world. but the business of the republic must go on. i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlelady from texas, ms. jackson lee, for ive minutes. ms. jackson lee: i ask the speaker to address the house, unanimous consent. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. ms. jackson lee: mr. speaker, i se to reflect again on yesterday's tragic and obviously painful event. i think it's important for our colleagues and certainly for those we represent across america to recognize that our attention on those issues are equal to the pain and the devastation that they represent. it is important to again offer sympathy to those who lost their loved ones, to those wh
about the bill. >> reporter: furious, president obama said the bill did not harm gun rights. >> this legislation met that test. and too many senators failed theirs. >> reporter: more anger erupted when a woman shouted at senators, shame on you. most republicans and four democrats from states with high gun ownership voted against expanding background checks. >> criminals do not submit to background checks now. they will not submit to expanded background checks. >> the way to stop violent crime is to stop violent criminals. >> reporter: the politics was about more than gun rights. later today, a bipartisan group of senators will roll out immigration reform. democrat senator joe manchin who fought hard to get enough votes on background checks found that with two politically hard votes, some senators chose immigration over guns. >> if you're looking at it and trying to evaluate it, they're saying maybe immigration and maybe guns on top of that might be too much for me to go home and explain. >> reporter: and many of those senators who voted no, toe me they had hearty most from t
obama. he spoke at the interfaith service yesterday. he is talking to one of the men involved with the marathon, matt. he told him that he will run again. some of the people off the limbs -- lsot limbs. does that give you hope or inspiration? caller: of course. the human spirit is here to stay, but we have a lot of problems to work out. we have to start raising our children right. host: you can see more images from yesterday's interfaith service. the mayor of boston, the governor of massachusetts, and others were there at yesterday's service. bernard in washington, d.c., independent caller. caller: good morning, thanks for taking my call. it's my first time. washington and maryland should be able to have a gun. there's a good opportunity you may be able to take out one person. host: explain what you mean by ccw. caller: that is a concealed carry permit. there's a chance maybe a terrorist or someone could take out one person in the neighborhood. but to be able to take out a neighbo -- out a whole neighborhood where everybody is armed, it would never happen in this country. host
a joke. >> oh, yeah! >>> the star of one of president obama's favorite tv shows is attending the white house correspondents' dinner this weekend, claire danes plays a c.i.a. agent on homeland. she's the guest of cbs news and will be sitting at a table full of members of the military. the network's other guests include afghanistan forces commander general john allen also army vice chief of staff general john campbell and retired admiral mike mullen, the former joint chiefs of staff. among others. >> bill: i will be there. that's not the table i'm sitting at. i wouldn't mind sitting at that table. >>> as you're drinking your coffee or tea this morning there is a good chance you went out of your way to get it instead of going for what was convenient. a new harris poll on morning beverage habits finds 60% of people will go out of their way to drink coffee or tea they think tastes better and they'll also spend more money for it. 78% say taste is the most important factor in choosing what they drink. >> bill: what do they mean going out of their way to get it? >> instead of stopping by the 7
. from the white house, president obama pledged to hunt down those responsible. >> make no mistake, we will get to the bottom of this and we will find out who did this. we'll find out why they did this. any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice. >> reporter: monday was patriots day in massachusetts, and the boston marathon is usually a day of celebration. for many, it will now be remembered as a day of shock, sorrow, and terror. with regard to that search warrant in revere, massachusetts, we're told there are no suspects. they talked to a few individuals. they'll be talking to a lot of people, the fbi noting that we may talking to you, your neighbor and your friends. to get to the bottom of this. people running public transit here, are being met some times by random searches. >> we'll be speaking to some eyewitnesss to this tragedy in a up coof minutes. >>> savannah, more coverage to you. we'll get to nbc justice correspondent pete williams. as i turn to you, this news conference is going on, we know that officials did conduct two bomb swe

someone like newt gingrich running for president and he calls president barack obama the food stamp president, on one level he can say i'm talking about how more people went on food stamps during barack obama's presidency than any other president. you can dispute that figure or not, and some people have, but that is what he says he means there but there's another meaning on top of it, where black people are associated with welfare programs. welfare programs are considered undesirable. the term welfare is determined undesirable, and if you can connect a black president with the idea the is handing free stuff to people to get them to vote for him, that's an association that can work with voters. and indeed people, journalists who interviewed folks who voted in the south carolina primary where gingrich won the republican contest, said that idea was a strong one for them. that association was something they agreed with. so, we see even now politicians can use this coded language, reach the people they want to reach, but also be able to deny they're using that tactic because there's anot
pieces, we won't be able to answer some of those questions. >> hagel also said the obama administration doesn't have enough information yet to decide whether the surviving 19-year-old tsarnaev brother should be sent to the guantanamo bay prison for terror suspects. >>> we're learning much, much more about the suspects now from the russian republic of dagestan where their father now lives. now cnn can exclusively reveal alleged boston bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, had video of a jihadist on his youtube channel. let's get to nick paton walsh now, he joins us by phone from dagestan. so nick, what do you know about this video? i just spoke with the police commissioner here in boston. he says this is a major development to him and it is going to be used in the investigation. >> what we know -- a youtube channel which tamerlan tsarnaev put up, had a link to and had a section called terrorists and had had a link to this man. the link was taken down but we have found the video that appeared to link to. he was a militant from azerbaijan. the better known name here is del gato. wha

part of a plot for signatures of obama and clinton in 2008 campaign has beg begun. the former elections worker and democratic official both face multiple charges for faking petitions that helped them qualify for the presidential race in the state. patti ann? >> thank you, heather. the 19-year-old boston bombing suspect has been charged with using a weapons of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property. here now to breakdown the charges is criminal defense attorney arthur aidala. >> the article in the boston haro herald introduces attorneys saying it seems cut and dry but there are a lot of problems with this case. first of all the guy is 19 has no criminal record. people say he was influenced his older brother it may help him get a lighter sentence. he was mir ran diessed. are there holes in the case? >> it is a little stretch to say there's a hole in the case. don't be surprised if they ask for a change of venue. timothy mcveigh did it with the oklahoma bombing. if it says it is wrong that city has been rocked in a way new york city was rocked. i believe we are going to see
discussion that the blind sheik, whose picture is up on the screen now, might be freed by the obama administration, that president morsi in egypt that seemed to infuriate you some what and you wrote an article, "will obama free the blind sheik?" now if you think about this, in this case, if the death penalty is not sought, are you concerned that some president down the road could ignore the issue of a life sentence imposed by a federal judge and just send the terrorist off somewhere? >> on this guy, tsarnaev? >> right. >> no, i'm not concerned about that. he's very different from the sheik. concerned about that. a sheikh is a highly symbolic figure among muslims. he was and still is widely respected as a muslim scholar, and regarded as an authority. he's a big deal. this guy is a mutt. >> so you're not worried about that? >> no. >> finally the death penalty, if he is charged with those crimes that he clearly can be, he's eligible for the death penalty? >> absolutely. >> do you think that this >> do you think this just disat the present time -- justice department will seek it? >> i h
